Early issues of the Canadian Geographical Journal (which in 1978 became simply Canadian Geographic) included some biographical information about the contributors. As you can imagine, this is of great interest to our project, even moreso when the biographies (volumes 1.2 through 6.4) include photos. Most of the female authors in the Canadian Geographical Journal will not have full-length entries in our project—in some cases this is the only publication we know of—but that doesn’t stop me wanting to share their photos and biographies.
